Main Character: Eddard Stark
Titles: Lord of Winterfell, Warden of the North
Eddard Stark, or “Ned” as he is affectionately known to his wife and close friends, is the head of Great House Stark. He resides in Winterfell, the ancestral home of House Stark; his rule extends over the vast provinces of the North. Eddard is a close friend to King Robert Baratheon, and played a major role in Robert’s Rebellion. He is a very capable warrior; he uses his greatword “Ice” in battle and when dispensing justice in the North.
Honor is his greatest weapon, but many also consider it a chink in his armor: it instills loyalty in his men, but it also means that Eddard sometimes goes down the honorable path when it would be more advantageous and beneficial to take the practical and expedient path. And that is something his enemies look to exploit.
